Learn More About Contactless Payments with Your Visa® Debit Card

What is a contactless payment? 

A contactless payment uses short-range wireless technology to make a secure payment between a contactless card or payment-enabled device and a contactless-enabled checkout terminal. When you tap your card or hold your device near the checkout terminal, your payment is sent for authorization. 

What is a digital wallet?  

In simple terms, a digital wallet is an electronic version of your physical wallet you carry. It stores your payment information in an online account. When you are making a purchase, you can use your digital wallet from your mobile device to provide information instead of presenting the card each time. 

How do digital wallets work? Are they secure? 

If you decide to add your card account number to a mobile device or digital wallet, our debit card provider, Visa, will issue a “token” or digital account number behind the scenes. Then when you initiate transactions with a mobile device, using this “token” or digital account number, not your debit card number, will be used to process the transaction, just like a traditional debit card payment. Because the “token” doesn’t carry your debit card number, you are less likely to become a victim of fraudulent activity. 

How do I hold my card at checkout? What is the benefit of using a “tap and go” payment method?

It works best when your contactless card or device is held flat over the checkout terminal. While tapping is optional, your card or device just needs to be within 1-2 inches of the checkout terminal card reader. 

Using a card that allows you to “tap and go” eliminates the wear and tear on your debit card due to excessive swiping and inserting of your card in merchant terminals. It also can be safer and more secure than swiping and inserting a chip. For example, it reduces the chances of dishonest merchant employees stealing your card’s magnetic-strip through “skimming,” –  the practice of fraudulently procuring card data. 

What are the advantages of contactless payments? 

Contactless payments make shopping fast and easy, making them ideal for quick shopping experiences at places like restaurants, grocery stores, and more. 

Contactless payments are secure because just like a chip card, each transaction is accompanied by a one-time code that protects your payment information. 

Contactless payments provide an electronic record of your purchases and give you all the functionality of a Visa card, so you can add a tip and even get cash back (where available).
